Cute Purple Tote Bags for Daily Use
Once an almost exclusively royal color, purple still holds on to its noble feel, but it is now accessible to the masses. A cute purple tote bag can be a magical detail that elevates your look and adds a splash of color. However, for the magic to occur, there are a couple of steps to follow. A harmonious color combination is key. Depending on the shade of purple you wear and the vibe you are going for, consider combining it with olives, blues, or solar yellow and orange.
The color purple lies at the intersection of blue and red. Based on the quantity of each primary color, purple can appear under many magical variations, like amethyst or violet. In fact, Amethyst Orchid was one of this year’s spring colors chosen by the Pantone Institute. The shade was chosen for its strong floral vibe that embraces the essence of nature’s rebirth.
Part of the reason that makes purple so magical is that it harmoniously combines the opposing characteristics of the primary colors that make it. Blue is associated with calmness, while red triggers our attention. This intriguing combination draws the viewer in and might even give rise to some conflicting feelings. It is also interesting to note that while lighter shades are associated with femininity, darker ones traditionally link to masculinity.
The color has long been associated with nobility and spirituality. This connection goes back all the way to antiquity. Rulers of the greatest empires - including Rome and Byzantium - regularly dressed in deep purple shades. Some even forbid the lower classes to wear the color, which was reserved exclusively for the higher-ups.
There is a logical explanation behind the purple craze. It all boils down to supply and demand. The color was very rare and difficult to obtain from natural dyes. The dye trade was rooted for centuries in Tyre, a Phoenician city, today found on the territory of Lebanon. The nuance produced there was known as Tyrian purple, and it had a higher concentration of red than blue. It was extracted from a species of sea snail living in the region. The extraction and processing of the dye were extremely complex and meticulous. You can read more about this here.
Naturally, under these circumstances clothes that were dyed purple were not only rare but very expensive. All of these qualities made royals covet cloth that emanated power and wealth. The allure of purple lingers across centuries as fashion designers and consumers alike continue to be drawn to it. However, what was once almost exclusively royal property, has now become available to the masses.
